Description UNBC offers Canada's first and only graduate program in disability management providing graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to assist labor, management, insurance providers, employers and employees with the development of successful work entry or return-to-work strategies for injured workers and/or persons with disabilities. From an academic perspective, the Disability Management Program has demonstrated ongoing excellence. Many students, working with the faculty, are to publish/have published peer-reviewed manuscripts as well as countless peer-conference proceedings. For our students who have chosen the non-thesis route, success is demonstrated through the implementation of their project documents into the grey literature, i.e. occupational policy and procedure manuals for major organizations across Canada.
